    I wouldn't own one, but I have to admit it's pretty cool. Would be fun to get it on a hoist to see all the welds and custom drive shaft that must have been required.

    it's not much bigger than my crewcab longbed, but has a queen sized sleeping area in the cab
    I have a cap with a elevated and shortened twin sideways at the siding window leaving room to fit an other twin between the wheel wells. so basically I lose nearly all of my bed to sleep 2 on road trip or camping

    I love the ability to have that much sleeping room in the cab
